Detectives are appealing for witnesses and information following a shooting in west London.

At some point between 15:30 and 16:30hrs on Friday, 29 June, a 21-year-old man was shot in the arm whilst on Thornbury Playing Fields close to London Road in Isleworth.

The victim self-presented at a west London hospital where he was treated for his injury before being discharged.

Detectives from the Trident and Area Crime Command have launched an investigation.

They would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the shooting, especially anyone who was near the basketball courts, skate park or children's play area.

They would also like to speak with anyone who saw a group of males congregating under the trees on the west-side of the park.

The offence occurred in the middle of the afternoon, on a hot day and the area park would have been filled with a large number of people.

Anyone with information is asked to contact officers via 101 quoting reference 5699/29Jun or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
